KnutAlbert (6705) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle from Centra. Good looking, but not much aroma. A little soot, a little toast, a hint of liquorice. But it is rather thin and watery. Too lightweight, but on a hot day it is probably refreshing.

ErikTheViking (76) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2009
7 April 2009 on Cardinal. This was the last beer of the night and the notes is influenced by that. It was dark. Nothing more to say, other than it tasted good too.

500ml bottle
4.5% ABV
I tried this beer on January 7, after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a very dark brown with a very thin, short-lived brown head. The aroma was roasted malt, some coffee, and some molasses. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied (weak for a stout) and mildly carbonated. The taste was bitter coffee, and watery. An alright beer, but unlikely to be tried again by me.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2009
I remember someone talking about making an Oyster Stout in the homebrew forum and I really wanted to give one a try. Bottle from Beer Bistro in Toronto. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Little aroma of roasted malt and some chocolate. I did think the beer was thin though and I was expecting something a lot more flavorful. Chocolate and roasted malt in the flavor.

DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle, lcbo. Pours a nice blackish brown pour with a golden brown espresso head. Smells faintly of malt. Taste is very generously ale-fruity with a hint of grain and coffee - not much deep roast here, and that’s just fine as it is.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2009
Bouteille de 500 ml, acheté au LCBO de Rideau et King Edward (Ottawa), février 2009. Noire, petit colle beige. Arome de malte chocolaté et de céréal müslik, très légé. Goût légé d’orge malté, peu chocolaé et aqueuse, une finision drolement amère. Vraiment pas impressionnant!

grimestown (9) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2009 does not count
500ml bottle purchased @ LCBO. Wonderfully rich dark brown body and thinnish cappucino coloured head. Roasted malt and hint of salt. Dry at the end. Mouthfeel thinner than expected but very easy and enjoyable to drink
